“I will not agree,” the woman shouted in the church. “I will not agreeooo. He must kill me first before this wedding. He must kill me and all my children. He came and married me in my father’s place. Now, he wants to abandon me and my children and wed another women in this church. Where is Fr. Mbaka? Fr. Mbaka comeoo! I know you are a man of God. I know that you don’t support evil. Come and see this man doing evil in your church. Come and seeooo. Whoever will support my husband in this will never see anything good…”
Incidentally, it was not Fr. Mbaka who was conducting the mass. It was a complete show of shame at the Christ the King Parish last Saturday. A father of three Mr. Ikechukwu Nwoha woefully failed to perfect a plan to take another woman to the altar.
Mr Nwoha, a native of Isikwuato in Isikwuato LGA of Abia State had initially, been married to Nwoha in the traditional way from Benue State.
AMEN Super News learnt that the marriage is blessed with three children with two still alive.
Reports said, abandoned his wife and children at Benue and fled to Enugu where he started ‘a new life.’ Part of this ‘new life’ was to get married to another woman and completely abandon his initial family to their unfortunate fate.
Thus, he got into a new courtship with Miss Julieth Nnenna Edeh, from Niagu-Akpugo and gave her the impression that he was still a bachelor. Unknown to Miss Julieth, her would-be husband had been married for more than nine years.
The bubble however, burst a month to the wedding day when a close relative who got wind of the wedding, revealed it to the Benue wife.
Christ The King Parish was heavily crowded that Saturday morning when Mrs. Nwoha, in company of her two children, stepped out in front of the altar. Fifteen other couples were also lined up with the deceitful husband, about to be wedded when Nkechi, the first daughter of the man, came forward, held his father and shouted, “Daddy, Daddy, why are you doing this to us?”
Panic took over the ceremony as Nkechi’s mother immediately invaded her husband, hitting, biting and clubbing the man all at once. At the peak of this melodrama, the randy husband had his “wedding coat” and shirt torn while the girl, with whom he was to exchange marriage vows, immediately disappeared in the ensuing confusion.
The failed wedding had the biggest irony attached to it. The purported new wife, Julieth, was already heavy with pregnancy. Although she disappeared from the scene, it is still doubtful if she would be in the best of health condition at the moment
